Notice CPD-13-01: Using CDBG Funds to Develop Energy Star®-Certified Housing Units


Date Published: May 2013


The purpose of this Notice is to provide guidance to encourage grantees to use Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to develop Energy Star-certified housing units and to report these accurately in the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS). On March 7, 2006, CPD published a Federal Register Notice (71 FR 11470) implementing performance measures for its formula grant programs. These measures included the number of Energy Star-certified housing units produced. Beginning in 2007, CPD required grantees to track Energy Star units that were built or rehabilitated with CDBG funds in the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS). Since that time, CDBG grantees have built or rehabilitated over 1,400 Energy Star units. More information about the benefits of Energy Star and the use of CDBG funds to develop these units is contained in the Notice.
